The Royal Wardrobe: keeping it long

It was all about keeping it long this week in the Royal Wardrobe. From evening gowns to trouser suits, there was plenty of covering up going on in the most royally glamourous way possible. Five outfits stood out - it's just for fun and there is a poll to pick your favourite on the main page or you can add you own choice at the bottom. Here's the Royal Wardrobe for this week.

The Duchess of Cambridge chose a rose gold evening gown by Jenny Packham for an appearance at a charity evening for East Anglia's Children Hospice - she is their royal patron. The colour is perfect for a summer's evening while the fitted cut of this dress gives it a fabulous fluidity. And as for those sparkles, what can you say? Sequins by royal appointment = stunning. Kate looks great.

Queen Letizia went all preppy for a day out in San Sebastian and wowed while she was at it. White trousers are a hard look to get right but Letizia is spot on here with her thirties style wide legged pants, simple top and navy blazer. Add in some retro shoes and a side bun and we have style and then some.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit seemed to get through about ten outfits on the day she went to Trondheim to help celebrate the 25th anniversary of the blessing of King Harald V and Queen Sonja at the start of their reign. There was some real pastel loveliness going on all day but the best look on the Crown Princess of Norway was her boho inspired summer's dress worn for a garden party. The frock is super simple and completely on trend with its big belt and huge sleeves. But Mette-Marit gets lots of extra point here for wearing a floral garland with total style. It's hard to think of anyone else who would look as good in this get up. Mette-Marit scores a winner.

The royal ladies of Luxembourg were in the mood for trousers as they helped celebrate National Day. On the eve of the big event itself, there were trouser suits all around but it was Princess Claire in her stripes who really stood out. It's very eighties which is very now and you can't miss this outfit. Claire pulls it off in style with tied back hair and strong make up to keep everything bold and bright. Fabulous.

Queen Maxima of the Netherlands did what only she can do this week - took an outfit that looks almost impossible to wear and turned it into a fashion statement all of her own. Bold prints and a peplum anyone? Thought not but Maxima makes it look fantastic. What's not to love about this bold pattern and eighties style jacket with fitted skirt?  

Five outfits, five takes on long and lovely - but which is your favourite? You can vote in the poll on the main page here or add your own pick in the comments below to increase the style of the Royal Wardrobe.
